Looks like yours is at least doing better than my DOA Tanaka from DD a month ago. I was pretty upset seeing mine belly up in the bag.

Hope he pulls through!
i hope he dose too and i’m sorry about yours

yea i’m sorry about that you can kinda see him swimming by the shadow i didn’t wanna shine a bright light on him but i’m pretty sure he has a swim bladder problem
Just for my info, why is it you diagnose swim bladder prob?
I’m just curious as everything I see is not overly concerning, I must be missing the behavioral problem.
Has he eaten?
When is he going into the DT?

he’s already in the display tank he’s the only only fish in the tank and he hasn’t eaten and when he swims it’s always going down like he’s nose bombing the bottom of the home made acclamation box then he bobs up a bit and then dose it again

My experience. Let him be. I once went to a friends house who receives fish from overseas and I’m sure pet stores see this. I swore a whole shipment were dead. But he told me just shocked and days later they were all fine. ESPECIALLY THE WRASSES. If still alive that’s a great sign. Good luck.

Ok, thanks for the update.
Head standing, if that’s what he’s doing, I agree, is not really a acclimatization problem in my mind.

We can only wait and hope, I’ll cross my fingers as it is a beautiful fish man.

Could be like 2 days. Also you may seem to see weird behavior while in the acclimation box. They are small and they will not feel comfortable. They want to hide. And feel they can’t. I have had wrasses not settle into normal behavior for 2 weeks. I had a leapord wrasse hide in sand for 2 weeks straight. Swore he was dead. Lol. Buy came out alive and eating. On day 15. If I were you I would release in tank to get him settled quicker. But I do understand why you are doing it. Your call on that

here’s a terrible picture cuz i don’t wanna accendently light shock him
I am sure glad your wrasse ain’t dead. Ime:
The poor guy needs to get out of the box where it can acclimate to the tank. What’s the point of keeping your wrasse in a closet when the tank is empty of other fish?
Sorry if I sound harsh. I don’t follow the logic of the process I guess?

yea i’m just trying to keep him in there because the moment i put him in my nassrius snail bugged him and plus the anemone which has ripped a peice of shrimp out of my fingers before and i think he would have a really easy time eating a stressed wrasse

Do you think buying and selling coral is similar to playing the stock market?
